Living with a passion of art, you constantly also are living in conflict with your personal view and the established view. How easy it is to just go with the flow, and don’t make up your own mind, if thousands love this, why shouldn’t I? If you think about if, you know that is not the sort of person you want to be. And we can blame society and aggresive advertising… Or we could look at Banksy: “The thing I hate the most about advertising is that it attracts all the bright, creative and ambitious young people, leaving us mainly with the slow and self-obsessed to become our artists.. Modern art is a disaster area. Never in the field of human history has so much been used by so many to say so little.”
For those of you who don’t know, Banksy is an English graffiti artist who’s work can be seen all over the world. If you take a look at wikipedia it staits:
“Banksy is a pseudonymous England-based graffiti artist, political activist, film director, and painter.
His work is splendid and spot on, and I must admit, his work often makes me a little uncomftible. Becouse he is right, and I feel ashamed, personly and for this world we are sharing.
“Graffiti is one of the few tools you have if you have almost nothing.
And even if you don’t come up with a picture to cure world poverty you can
make someone smile while they’re having a piss.” Banksy “Banging your head against a brick wall”
